with disabilities by giving them a place to exhibit
and sell their artwork as well as resources to continue
developing their artistic skills.
In addition to providing a showcase for artists, VSA
arts RI’s EXHIBITION PROGRAM also has the goals
of raising public awareness of our organization and
its mission, as well as challenging an audience's assumptions
about disability by reminding viewers that every person
has unique capabilities and that throughout RI there
are many talented artists with disabilities.
Please read our guidelines
carefully before contacting VSA arts RI about upcoming
exhibition possibilities and deadlines.
